We study a three-component superfluid Fermi gas in a spherically symmetric harmonic trap using the Bogoliubov–deGennes method. We predict a coexistence phase in which two pairing field order parameters are simultaneously non-zero, in stark contrast to studies performed for trapped gases using local density approximation. We also discuss the role of atom number conservation in the context of a homogeneous system.
